    Default Olive oil toxic when heated?

    Someone was telling me olive oil can be toxic when used with high heat. Is this true? How hot is too hot? And what exactly is the toxicity?

    I use a lot of olive oil in my cooking. The only time I don't really use olive oil is deep frying. And then I use veggie oil but only because its cheaper. I've never heard of olive oil being toxic before. So how hot is too hot?

    The oil itself isn't toxic, but the smoke created from cooking it at temps above 200 can be.

    I have not heard any thing toxic about olive oil whether it is cool or hot to nay temperature. It is quite stable compound which remain in original composition. But make it too hot may result into decomposition of it but on e thing for sure that it is not toxic at cooking temperatures.
